We have a daughter just a few months over two, I guess were lucky since she’s so energetic and really has a passion for dancing already.
I saw it was one of your recommendations and it made me smile, we encourage her doing it as it really gives her a fun workout.

I must say these are one of the best ways to make kids involve in such fun activities. In this digital age, when kids prefer playing online games which affects their overall growth. All your ideas sounds really interesting to divert kids mind from online world. Thanks for sharing this!
